You're gonna buy a share or two of MKL and you're gonna think "Why did I do that?" It's so BORING. It's like tuning into the golf channel when you're sober. It's like considering exfoliating. It's like wondering why 'M' and 'N' even need to be distinct letters.

But that's the thing: this company is going to do alright. It not going to crush the market, but it will beat it. Your friends will not gather around to hear you regale them with stories of how your MKL returns allowed you to purchase New Mexico. No, your MKL path will be more subdued, more zen. Purchasing MKL will allow you to rise above the market like, um, some kind of appropriate analogy or something.

So give Markel a thumbs up, or buy a share or two. ...and call your mother. She misses you.
